Use Your Stuff #227 - Problem Solver

Hello again! I am back again with my second project of the day. If you are looking for my Stick It Down card reveal, please scroll down or go here.

We have a new challenge up today over at Use Your Stuff. This week Karrie's challenge is - "Good things in 3's".  You must use the following:

3 photos (or 3 phrases if you are a card maker)
3 colors (black and white are free colors)
3 embellishments (use as many of each that you want, but there needs to be 3 different types of embellishments on your project).

I used the three photos, red, blue, and yellow for my colors, star die cuts, star wood veneer, and enamel dots as my embellishments. I may have inadvertently cheated just a bit here. I do have a tag on there for my hidden journaling. It was kind of an after thought, but I didn't want to write directly on my layout this time.

Our youngest son loved to explore all of the nooks and crannies of our house when we first moved in. He especially loved to crawl through the kitchen cabinets and just lay in there. Sometimes he would forget the easy way to get back out, but he always figured it out pretty quickly (and maybe after a few tears!)

I used an older sketch from Scrap the Boys that I had pinned on my Pinterest board. It was perfect for these photos.

Be sure to check out the Use Your Stuff blog to see how the rest of the design team interpreted this challenge. I hope you play along with us this week. I would love to see your creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!


  1. Love the colours! The pops of red those stars give are fantastic!

  2. Yes, you can't go wrong with that classic color combo.

  3. Love your colour combo and the stars are a perfect touch for your theme. Thanks for joining in on my Good Things in 3's challenge!
